GIFs to Get You Motivated for the Gym


Who doesn’t embrace the idea of changing your body for the better? The chance to get healthier, get in better shape, and just feel better overall is definitely an enticing result of working out at home or hitting the gym, so why is it sometimes so damn difficult to actually bring ourselves to “just do it?”

Finding motivation to take a spin class or pop in a workout DVD  can be tough, especially when our bodies slow down in the winter months. Still, as the saying goes, “beach bodies are built in the winter” – or so the fitness industry would have us believe. While this may seem a little cliche, there is some truth to this statement! In all seriousness, working out is a must as far as staying healthy and happy, and winter workouts set you up to be on track for exercising in the warmer weather you love.  But on a less serious note, here’s some funny GIFs to motivate you to get your butt up and active.

All joking aside, there’s a message here: we want to work out, but sometimes we just have a hard time mustering up the motivation to do it.  Oh, and we also love to complain about it! But hopefully these GIFs gave you a comedic take on gym motivation!

Whether you’re bundled up for single digit wind chill (shout out to Northern Midwest), or you’re lucky enough to only need an extra layer, taking some time out of the not-so-eventful winter months will be worth-while when you’re on the beach living the fit life. Still looking for a little extra push? Check out CC’s post for the 6 most effective ways to get out of that funk and get your ass to the gym!

I'm an AFAA certified fitness instructor and I adore my job. I'm also an undergrad studying neuroscience, and health and wellness. I love kickboxing and running (which might be for the endorphins). I spend way too much time on my hair, drink seltzer with every meal and eat pretty much anything made of chocolate. I love inspirational quotes and I'm a total cornball when it comes to my sense of humor. Contact me: @google+ @website
